Breast Cancer Awareness..."Bras on Broadway"!

In Fargo we have a splendid boutique hotel called The Hotel Donaldson, or as locals call it, "The HoDo" and every October they do a big fundraiser to support breast cancer awareness. The event runs through all of October and throughout the month, local businesses collect bras and donations, and this is the 8th year for the event.  The pictures here were taken today and show 4,300 BRAS hanging down the side of the hotel - let me say it is quite a spectacle!!!! During the first 7 years, the event has raised $430,000 for women in the area fighting breast cancer. I really wanted to share this amazing spectacle with you all!

Halloween is around the corner....

Then of course it turns into Thanksgiving and finally...Hanukkah and Christmas! Actually, for the first time in thousands of years, the first night of Hanukkah will fall on Thanksgiving night and it won't happen again for a VERY long time so that is rather unique. I have a couple of cute Christmas designs going out for framing, then they will be ready for release - the goblins design is already released and available through your local needlework stores. Also coming up soon will be another giveaway - this one will be Christmas themed so be sure to check back and watch for it - the last time my two winners were THRILLED with their gifts they won!!

So here are a couple of Fall weather pics - all the way from scary storm clouds (complete with a tornado alert that day!) to the changing of the leaves. I think it is the winter nesting mode that I love looking forward to!
